The New England Patriots continue to shore up their wide receiver corps.

According to the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Patriots are signing Coleman after working the former first round pick out last week. He signed with Chicago earlier this offseason but was unable to earn a spot on the team's 53-man roster. Then, Coleman didn't make final cuts with the Buffalo Bills, making him a free agent.

On Monday, the team brought in former first-round pick Corey Coleman in for a visit.

The 24-year-old Coleman was selected by the Browns with the 15th-overall selection in 2016.

Staying on court was too much for me: Rafael Nadal,
Nadal would figure to have a tougher time in his fourth meeting with del Potro in the last five Grand Slam tournaments. But if there is one player who deserves a slightly less strenuous path to a Grand Slam final, it is del Potro .

Coleman's departure to the Pats will bring up memories of other players who left the Bills for New England only to find success such as wideout Chris Hogan and cornerback Stephon Gilmore. With Julian Edelman suspended for the first four games, Rob Gronkowski did most of the receiving work in Sunday's season opener, catching seven passes for 123 yards against the Houston Texans. He also finished with five receptions for 56 yards, 10 kick returns for 194 yards and 27 punt returns for 240 yards.

But Cordarrelle Patterson (16 plays) and Riley McCarron (15) rotated through and made little impact as the third and fourth receivers.

Barner, 28, was a sixth-round pick by the Panthers in 2013 and returned to Carolina for training camp this year.
